And lastly how do you archive tapes? Dvd?

Thanks soooooooo much.
Hi Joe,

One of the coolest features of our cameras is that you can shoot on both tape and HDD at the same time, in any record mode. So, you get two exactly the same copies of everything you shoot. Tape dropouts or other tape issues will not affect the HDD recording. Also, the HDD units greatly extend your max record time. Finally, the HDD units allow you to eliminate the capture step when editing. In most NLE's, you can just drag and drop the files from the drive into your NLE bin, or do an import. I highly recommend the DR-HD100 units!

If you shoot on both the drive and tape, then the tape becomes your archive, and you edit from the HDD.

Regards,

Carl,
When you drop the files from he drive into the editing suite, do you still capture the normal way with in and out points, or do you have to capture the whole footage. How does it work. I am using FCP

Hi Dennis,

The firestore makes each take into a file which you can then import straight into your edit software no capture involved, it really is that simple. Well that's with Premiere anyway. However, I imagine it's the same sort of deal with Final Cut. Hope this helps.

When you shoot with the DRHD100 with the intention of editing on FCP, make sure to set the HD file format to ".mov". This way, FCP will see these files as quicktime, and you can just drad & drop into FCP, very easily.

Thanks Carl, but does that mean one has to keep the entire footage and select in- out points or is it just one giant movie? I shoot about 20 mins for a 30 sec TV commercial. Would I have to keep the whole vision shot on the Hard drive.? How do I get rid of the xs?

Dennis, every time you hit the trigger button on the camera, you create a new clip (new file) on the HDD - just like tape. You can view the clips in your camera, in the playback mode, and you can delete them in the field if you like, although most people wait until later. Once you have connected your HDD to the MAC, you can select one, some, or all of the files to bring into FCP.
